Photographed by Mario Testino, Cameron Diaz is on the cover of Vogue June 2009. There is no denying her beauty, it never was..but this time around there is a certain quietness, a level of comfort in her own skin that I found it to be even more interesting than just the cute California girl. Evolving as an actress is their ultimate goal..but that is impossible to achieve if they do not evolve as a human being.
